BACKGROUND Increasing evidence suggests photoprotection by oral supplementation with β-carotene and lycopene. OBJECTIVES To examine the capacity of lycopene-rich tomato nutrient complex (TNC) and lutein, to protect against ultraviolet (UV)A/B and UVA1 radiation at a molecular level. METHODS In a placebo-controlled, double-blinded, randomized, crossover study two active treatments containing either TNC or lutein were assessed for their capacity to decrease the expression of UVA1 the… CONTINUE READING
